The Avengers Project Development Is Underway At Crystal Dynamics' New Studio
Crystal Dynamics assembles a new team.
Crystal Dynamics just opened a new studio in Bellevue, Washington. Called Crystal Northwest, the studio is initially focusing on technology development and work on The Avengers Project, a highly-anticipated Crystal Dynamics game based on the Marvel comics.
Co-head of studio at Crystal Dynamics, Scot Amos, said, "We have assembled a team of industry veterans and leaders in order to create gaming experiences that surpass the expectations of our passionate community." Crystal Northwest is led by Chad Queen and James Loe, both industry veterans.
The Avengers Project was first announced via trailer in January 2017. Since then, Crystal Dynamics hasn't mentioned much about the new game. It was rumored and then confirmed that Shaun Escayg is The Avengers Project's creative director. Visceral Games veteran Stephen Barry was also hired by Crystal Dynamics as the game's director. However, other than the letting us know who's behind The Avenger's Project, Crystal Dynamics hasn't revealed any concrete details about the game.
We were sure we'd see a new trailer or gameplay at E3 2018 but surprisingly, The Avengers Project never showed. Hopefully with an entirely new studio behind it, we'll get a new announcement about the project within the next year.
